1.    Preheat the oven to 200°C.

2.    For the glaze, heat all of the ingredients together in a saucepan over medium heat and set aside.

3.    For the quails, make the stuffing by combining the spring onions, cranberries, pistachios and breadcrumbs, and season. Stuff the cavities of the quails and tie up the legs to keep the stuffing inside. Place the quails on a baking tray. Brush each bird with the glaze and top with a mandarin slice. Roast the quails until golden and cooked through, basting atleast3timesduringthecooking process, 20 – 25 minutes.

4.    Remove the quails from the roasting tray and set aside. Pour the wine and mustard into the warm tray with the pan drippings. Heat to loosen the pan drippings and stir to form a sauce. Stir in the cream and mandarin segments and cook, about 2 minutes.

5.    Serve the quails with the sauce, couscous, green salad and microherbs.

Cook’s tip

If you would like to add even more flavor to this dish, marinate the quails in 125ml (½ cup) olive oil, 60ml (¼ cup) red wine vinegar and 15ml (1 tbsp) crushed garlic. Place in a big sealable plastic bag, add the birds, shake to coat and leave to marinate in the fridge, about 30 minutes, before stuffing them.
